The internet is not safe. Online, anyone can pretend to be anyone. Forty year old men act like fifteen year old boys to talk to thirteen year old girls on MySpace. Spammers have hijacked how we think of brands - like Viagra . Anyone can download software to read other people’s email. Businesses spend billions of dollars communicating in inefficient ways to consumers who would love to reduce the clutter .
We used to think that being a part of a social network was worth surrendering our personal information – now we’re not so sure . There’s no way of knowing who to trust online.
The world is ready for a giant step forward in how we interact online. We want to be able to participate in all of the amazing things that the web can offer but don’t want to share the intimate details of our lives with strangers around the world. We want to be able to easily manage our disclosure and risk . We need a way of designating who we trust online and limiting who our personal information and communication is shared with.
TrustMe is an API-accessible, trust platform that developers may use to incorporate authentication, trusted relationships and secure communication within web sites and applications.
Users build a list of trusted contacts and organize them into groups using any TrustMe compatible application or web site. The groups and contacts are stored by the TrustMe managed universal Public Key Name Server ( PKNS ). Applications use the TrustMe API to check with the PKNS and confirm that a user is trusted by the contributor before permitting them to access the information or message. How TrustMe Works
